Conceptions of Experience in the German Enlightenment between Wolff and Kant

24
feb
2017

The purpose of this conference is to analyze the various conceptions of experience at play in eighteenth-century German philosophy between Leibniz's death in 1716 and Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. During this period, the classical Aristotelian definition of experience as cognition of singulars – to some extent still present in Wolff – became confronted with the Baconian and Newtonian accounts of empirical knowledge.

INCUBATORS Conference - Urban Living Labs for public space. A new generation of planning?

10
apr
2017

While participatory planning is widely hailed as a prerequisite for well-managed urban development and sustainability, this ideal can be difficult to implement in practice, due to the complexity of interactions between stakeholders and the difficulty of public users to realise a tangible ‘hand-on’ contribution. Incubators of Public Spaces aims to expand the opportunities for civic engagement in urban design through the creation of a user friendly online platform as an aid to local option generation and selection.

International Symposium: Between Metaphysics, Aesthetics and Religion

20
apr
2017

Metaphysics has gotten a bad rep throughout the last decades. This ancient practice is thought to be not simply archaic as the systematic interrelationship of concepts that fails to understand the twists and turns of the human condition, but also hegemonic, oppressive and just plain wrong. As a result of this point of view, most philosophers abstain from providing a comprehensive and overarching account of such things as being, religion, art and ethics.

Bachelard Today – Bachelard Aujourd'hui

24
apr
2017

Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962) can be considered as one of the most prominent French philosophers of the first half of the 20th century. During that period, and even into the 60’s and 70’s Bachelard’s work was widely read and his ideas influenced authors as diverse as Canguilhem, Simondon, Barthes, Foucault, Althusser and Bourdieu. More recently however Bachelard’s theoretical oeuvre seems to have disappeared from the map. Despite its huge influence, his work is rarely discussed outside the specialist circles of French historical epistemology.
